London terror attack

More than twenty-four hours have passed since the bombings in London but I am still in shock and deep sadness.

Having spent 2.5 wonderful years based in London, it has been chilling to recognise the streets, landmarks and tube stations which were once an everyday part of my life. Watching the images of aftermath has been surreal. I cannot imagine how Londoners must feel.

Thankfully, my dear friends across the seas all appear to be safe and unharmed. And of course I am checking the posts of London-based bloggers who have become friends from afar as well. Which still does not deny that innocent people have died, and I extend my sympathies to all those affected.

There is so little one can say. But know that you are in our hearts and we are thinking of you all...

    Hi MrsT - The images were definitely chilling, although of course it is a sad reality that thousands of people die every day in the world.

    When you recognise places it certainly does seem closer and you ponder the 'what if'.

    Hi Ben - Glad that all your friends and relatives are ok too.
